Easy Ways to Bond With Your Niece or Nephew

Being an aunt was always exciting to me. From playing “family” with my little sister to actually living it, being “Auntie Joey” is one of the best names I have. I’ve done late nights and early mornings, hospital visits, being covered in bodily fluids, the first day of school, punishments, tantrums, accomplishments and a whole lot more.
